The tabernacle, often found in Roman Catholic churches, as well as some Anglican and Lutheran churches, is a place where consecrated hosts of the holy Eucharist are kept if they are not eaten. Always behind a door for keeping. Some churches have a prie dieu, as well as pews, near the tabernacle for the public to kneel and pray.
